PREMIERE MONDIALE A JUMET. TUNNEL EXPERIMENTAL DE JUMET. T.A.U. TRANSPORT AUTOMATISE URBAIN

Automated Urban Transport is a light unmanned metro project for medium-size town requirements. Promotors of the new system are emphasising the low infrastructure building costs. An experimental site has been opened in Jumet and a new tunnel building method (R.D.W.) is being exhibited for the first time. The author describes the different stages of tunnel drilling work (dry and bentonite methods) with photogrpahs and diagrams and outlines the thinking behind the method.
